Austin, Texas — Pepsi’s “Refresh Everything” social campaign has certainly caught the attention of marketers and consumers in the last two years. But hiring social media strategist Shiv Singh away from digital shop Razorfish in mid-2010 was another clear signal that the beverages/snacks company was serious about interactive marketing.
Since his arrival as head of digital for PepsiCo Beverages North America, the company’s digital activity has been on the upswing, with an emphasis on mobile. Singh and his team have worked with Foursquare and Stickybits in the geo-social realm, while partnering with Facebook to insert the “like” button into display ads across publisher networks.
In the video interview below, shot in slightly windy conditions in the “Pepsi Max Lot” near the SXSWi convention center, Singh riffs on what his firm has been able to accomplish while offering predictions for the future:
Sure, some apps are doing personalized push notifications, but what happens when your users are in the app?
Since cloud computing first gained mainstream attention around 2009, its popularity has exploded. Promising increased efficiency, flexibility and cost-effectiveness, it was hailed as the ultimate business solution. But are users seeing the benefits?
The term ‘marketing cloud’ has gained significant traction in the last few years as major software companies have sought to monetise the growing importance of technology for marketing teams.
There will be an estimated 20.8 billion connected devices in the world (up from the current figure of 6.4 billion), the advent of 5G represents an enormous opportunity within the world of mobile.
